Pairing integration

Page contents


Summary

'Pairing integration' is the process that allows any supplier to integrate their system with any principal clinical system through an interface mechanism.

Interface mechanisms enable separate systems to:

  • read patient information
  • extract information in bulk
  • and enter data into the other system

You can find more information on each of the IM1 interfaces on the GPSoC Interface Mechanism Fact Sheet

The four principal clinical system suppliers on the GPSoC framework are TPP SystmOne, EMIS Web, InPS Vision and Microtest Evolution.

Each must provide an 'interface mechanism' for use by 3rd party systems to support integration between the principal system and specialist applications, such as for document management or appointments.

Interface mechanisms enable separate systems to: 

  • read patient information
  • extract information in bulk
  • and enter data into the other system

The interface mechanisms which Principal Clinical system suppliers provide under GPSoC must comply with the Authority Requirements..

Any supplier can apply to 'pair' their service with any principal clinical system.

Process

To access the GPSoC Pairing Integration Process, suppliers must first complete a PIQ entry form. Suppliers must complete the GPSoC assurance process for each pairing.

PIQ stages
The five stages of pairing integration and documentation related to each stage.
